What's the Layer Thickness of the Different 3D Printing Materials?

In 3D printing, when we talk about layer thickness, we are referring to the vertical resolution or Z-resolution. Below you can find the different layer thicknesses of our 3D printing materials. Please note that for cast metals (gold, silver, brass, copper, and bronze), the layer thickness refers to the 3D printed wax model.
